Panini America Notifies Collectors of Issue Involving Takkarist McKinley Autographs

May 5, 2017


Panini America officials late Thursday were alerted to a situation involving questionable autographs of Atlanta Falcons first-round pick Takkarist McKinley that were included in the company’s recently released 2017 Elite Draft Picks Football and 2017 Contenders Draft Picks Football products. Through extensive research and working closely with McKinley’s representatives, Panini America officials have confirmed that some of McKinley’s autographs in those products were not signed by McKinley.

While this is an extremely unfortunate situation, Panini America officials have agreed to work with McKinley and his representatives to rectify the issue by offering to replace any McKinley autograph cards from the aforementioned products with versions featuring authentic McKinley signatures.

Collectors in possession of McKinley autograph cards from 2017 Elite Draft Picks Football and 2017 Contenders Draft Picks Football are encouraged to send them to Panini America  for replacement at:

    Always a shame when something like this happens, I’ve heard of other companies not offering anything when clear evidence of an issue has been presented. Great job as always, thanks Tracy!
